Watch Juliana and Adam's Story

My name is Juliana Rodriguez. I am a student and a senior admin for Dallas College, and I have a three-year-old little boy who attends Bezos Academy.

There's many families out there that don't have any options to take care of their child. So having this academy here on the actual campus where you can go to class, pick your child up after class, and it's tuition-free childcare.

I can see what Adam is learning already in the classroom because he brings it home. He loves all his teachers. They show him that they care for him, but I think he has a favorite, Miss Julia. He always talks about Miss Julia.

I'm just glad that Dallas College partnered with Bezos Academy to bring this opportunity to our employees and our students because it's made a big difference.
